OverviewPeopleGovernmentEconomyTrendAnalysis

The Democratic Republic of Leckenby is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Prime Minister Arsene Wenger with a fair hand, and notable for its anti-smoking policies. Its compassionate, intelligent population of 20.266 billion enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Education, Social Welfare, and Healthcare. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Arjen. The average income tax rate is 34%, but much higher for the wealthy. The private sector is almost wholly made up of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, although the government is looking at stamping this out.

Criminals are put to death while cuddling their favourite teddy bear, teenagers across the country are celebrating the defeat of a national curfew bill, a large-scale revitalization of the education system is underway, and the national guard is mobilized whenever a mother gets separated from her child at the mall. Crime is relatively low, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Leckenby's national animal is the penguin, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its currency is the Euro.

Leckenby is ranked 1st in Emirates and 122,406th in the world for Largest Cheese Export Sector, scoring -12 on the Mozzarella Productivity Index.
